|Beak - El Hacedor EP [mtk150] - Beak|
We've made release #150 in style, thanks to Monotonik artist Beak, who previously released the much-loved 'Amoral Mayor Earwig EP' last year. This time, he's returned with the guitar-idm specialness of 'El Hacedor EP', featuring three tracks originally composed for the Project168 collective's efforts earlier in 2005, and his mix of contemplative acoustics and carefully nimble percussion. We start proceedings with 'Baileyi', all peaking hi-hats, wolf howls, and carefully picked guitars, before mo...

|Coax - Blackened EP [mtk151] - Coax|
This time, a fine debut from mysterious Norwegian idm-er Coax, also known as Reflex, and with his only previous release being the ultra-obscure, self-released 'Showcase' CD. He helps us out on Monotonik with a first release in the form of the electro-tinged, extremely catchy, almost retro video game-like electronics of the 'Blackened EP' - and we thank him. First up is the pounding, electro-happy beat of '1984', all pure sinewaves and sustain, as Coax taps into the pure melodies and simple joys ...

|Kultobjekt - Bitte 1Bit! [1bit 007] - 1bit wonder|
This is Mirsch of Latex Distortion with his solo debut: Kultobjekt represents his softer side, dedicated rather to warmup sessions and afterhours than to peaktime stomping. As he starts, you will come think 'This Must Be Morning' - wake up as The Coffee Brings You Back. And when the day is gone and the sun is setting again, his sound is just perfect again when you're Getting Hot For Evening: Dancin' all night long till Next Morning Breaks...

|3tronik - Anpassung (Sutemos017) - 3tronik|
First of all 3tronik is important for Sutemos net label because this French producer was the first to appear on it. At that time we really didn‘t know if our idea of running a virtual label will be successful and will we be able to grant his further activity. 3tronik - K0ma Proj3ct and his successor Intelligent Toys compilation achieved lots of attention and we still keep hearing opinions that these two are the best releases on our net label...

|[APL034] Motionfield - Music for Pictures - Petter Friberg|
Transforming pictures into music is the motivation of the Swede Petter Friberg. At the age of 10, during the age of electronic innovators like Jean-Michel Jarre, Brian Eno and Kraftwerk, Petter did experiments using tape recorders. Together with Thomas Krome and friends he built up a studio during the mid 90's, listening to The Orb, F.S.O.L. and Aphex Twin. The efforts resulted in several techno/house 12''s under his 'Superstereo' moniker, but more recently Petter unveiled a new project with 'Mo...

|Aleksi Eeben - Spaceman Far Away From Home [mtk169] - Aleksi Eeben|
Seriously, what else is there to say about Finnish old-school Amiga demo scene legend Aleksi Eeben, aka Heatbeat? Way back in 1990 or so, when he was in his early teens, he produced some of the best music the Amiga has ever heard. As his talent grew throughout the '90s and into the new century, his jazz influences and unique retro electronic background (he also codes music composition software for the Commodore 64, Game Boy and even VIC-20) have produced an unbelievably unique style...

|Beak - Bishop Whitney EP [mtk180] - Beak|
The latest release for guitar and beat-strewn idm artist Beak on Monotonik, following the 'Amoral Mayor Earwig EP' back in 2004 and 'El Hacedor EP' in 2005, the 'Bishop Whitney EP' continues his extremely unique mix of strongly played guitar, acoustic noises and cut-up percussion in fine, fine style. This time, we start out with the characteristic plucked freneticism of 'Context Clues', before seguing into the languid crawl of 'Teach Texas Manner', further showcasing his totally individual, beau...

|Model A - Angry Hippo [SiS-07] - Model A|
Model A is Alan Foreman or Alan Foreman is Model A. I dont really know but this ep is just perfect. On one side you have the urgency, poignancy and melodic power of the first records of Modest Mouse and Havergal. On the other side you have the precision, passion and energy just below the surface of the ocean like in the first Mercury Rev records and those from almost unknown but ultimately mythical Rollerskate Skinny...

|Feuerbach - Ask Us No Questions And We'll Tell You No Lies [SiS-06] - Feuerbach|
Feuerbach come both from Genk, Belgium. This is their first release after a song on a Rarefish compilation Tree we fell in love with. But sadly after this beginning the band went on hiatus. That made us so sad that we started to ask them constantly for more songs. During last spring, they finally accepted to come back to life and to work on a few songs for us. It gave them energy, fervor and desire to let the band grow; Feuerbach is now more alive than ever! These are pure indie pop folk melodie...
